這是繼「綠袖子」(Greensleeves)之後,英格蘭最有名的民謠,這是一首古老的「謎歌」(Riddle Song),作於16-17世紀之間,作者不祥,與其他「謎歌」相同,男女之間的感情,故意利用一些很困難達到的要求,來考驗對方,其實是一種含蓄的愛的表現,就如同「你是否願意為我摘天上的星星」等話語一般。Scarborough是一個地名, 在英格蘭北部,Fair是一種植物或花卉的市集或展示會。

Scarborough Fair 由於是一首「謎歌」,所以有許多不同的歌詞,但皆不離提出一些不容易達到的考題。 這首歌還有一項很大的特色,就是其演唱的方式,應該說是合唱的方式,演唱者可以高、中、低音三部合唱,或者前後歌詞跟著唱,甚至有合聲者會領先主唱者唱前一句歌詞,變化多端,耐人尋味,這是聽這首歌時的最大享受。

“Scarborough Fair” is a traditional English ballad in the middle English period. As the versions of the ballad known under the title “Scarborough Fair” are usually limited to the exchange of these impossible tasks, many suggestions concerning the plot have been proposed, including the hypothesis that it is a song about the Plague.

It is know as a ‘riddle’ song as well as Greensleeves.

當時海莉還在天使女伶演譯英文聖詩 Abide with me(求神同住),其純美清澈的歌聲洗滌眾人心靈。
同時此聖詩表達出人類渴求神的幫助,我們都曉得不過是微小的,但主依然愛我們、幫助我們。

Hayley as Celtic Women who sang Abide With Me.
What an angelic voice from the heaven. Amen.

Phantom of the Opera 2004 Movie

Phantom of the Opera 2004 MovieThe Story (movie version) 電影版故事內容 :

His voice calls to her, nurturing her extraordinary talents from the shadows of the opera house where innocent chorus girl Christine Daae (EMMY ROSSUM) makes her home. Only ballet mistress Madame Giry (MIRANDA RICHARDSON) knows that Christine’s mysterious “Angel of Music” is actually the Phantom (GERARD BUTLER), a disfigured musical genius who haunts the catacombs of the theatre, terrifying the ensemble of artists who live and work there.

When temperamental diva La Carlotta (MINNIE DRIVER) walks out in the middle of a dress rehearsal for the company’s latest production, the theatre’s eager new managers (SIMON CALLOW and CIARAN HINDS) have no choice but to thrust Christine into the spotlight.

Her mesmerizing opening night performance captivates both the audience and the Phantom, who devotes himself to casting his protégé as the opera’s next star. But he is not the only powerful man to be awed by the young soprano, as Christine soon finds herself courted by the theatre’s wealthy patron, the Vicompte Raoul de Chagny (PATRICK WILSON).

Though she is enthralled by her charismatic mentor, Christine is undeniably drawn to the dashing Raoul, enraging the Phantom and setting the stage for a dramatic crescendo in which soaring passions, fierce jealousies and obsessive love threaten to drive the fated lovers past the point of no return.

【簡介】
本片描述十九世紀發生在法國巴黎歌劇院的愛情故事。時值1870年,在歌劇院的地窖深處,傳說住著一名相貌醜陋、戴著面具、卻學識淵博的音樂天才,多年來他神出鬼沒,躲避世人驚懼鄙夷的目光,被眾人稱之為”魅影”(傑拉德·巴特勒飾)。他動輒以鬼魅之姿製造各種紛亂,趕走他討厭的歌手,甚至還干涉歌劇院的主角人選和劇碼安排。
在無意間,魅影發現芭蕾舞員克莉絲汀(艾米·羅森飾)擁有不凡的天賦美聲,讓他傾慕不已。激賞之餘,魅影決定不計一切代價,將年輕貌美的克莉絲汀調教成首席女高音。然而,最初發自於精神層面的音樂之愛,卻逐漸轉化成為強烈的占有欲。走火入魔的魅影更以實際行動,把所有妨礙克莉絲汀歌唱事業的人一一除掉。
後來,戲院的投資人勞爾(帕特裡克·威爾森飾)認出克莉絲汀是他的兒時玩伴,兩人墜入愛河。魅影發現後,自覺遭到背叛,怒而砍斷舞台大吊燈的鐵鏈,讓整座華麗的水晶燈砰然粉碎在觀眾席上。隨著魅影的破壞愈來愈血腥瘋狂,克莉絲汀對他的感情也逐漸從迷戀轉為恐懼、害怕和憐憫。
半年後,勞爾跟克莉絲汀秘密訂婚,魅影突然現身於歌劇院的化裝舞會,強迫歌劇院演出他親手譜作的歌劇《唐璜》,並指名由克莉絲汀擔任女主角。心煩意亂的克莉絲汀,半夜奔至父親墳前哭訴,勞爾則誓言要與魅影周旋到底。
在《唐璜》首演當日,歌劇院四周布滿警察,孰料魅影竟然殺死男主角,親身改扮上場,與克莉絲汀演對手戲。在戲演到最高潮時,克莉絲汀當眾扯下他的面具,魅影羞愧心碎之際,動手將克莉絲汀擄至他的地下密室。勞爾追蹤至地下,和魅影展開對決,卻被他用繩索勒住,魅影借此要脅克莉絲汀答應求婚。
為了保護愛人勞爾,克莉絲汀毅然傾身,狠狠吻著魅影那張仿佛被地獄詛咒的臉。至此,這場愛情的勝負已定。絕望的魅影送走緊緊相擁的這對戀人,在警察和群眾闖入地下密室前,悄然隱去,只留下一張似笑非笑的凄涼面具……

Everybody’s got something
They had to leave behind
One regret from yesterday
That just seems to grow with time

There’s no use looking back or wondering
How it could be now or might have been (might have been)
all this I know but still I can’t find ways
To let you go

CHORUS
I never had a dream come true
Till the day that I found you
Even though I pretend that I’ve moved on
You’ll always be my baby
I never found the words to say (words to say)
You’re the one I think about each day (each dayyyy)
And I know no matter
Where life takes me to
A part of me will always be with you,ooooh yea

Somewhere in my memory
I’ve lost all sense of time (tiiimmeee)
And tomorrow can never be
Cuz yesterday is all that fills my mind
There’s no use looking back or wondering(or wondering)
How it should be now or might have been (or might of been)
Oh this I know but still I can’t find ways
to let you go

CHORUS
I never had a dream come true
Till the day that I found you
Even though I pretend that I moved on
You’ll always be my baby
I never found the words to say (words to say)
You’re the one I think about each day (each dayyyy)
And I know no matter
Where life takes me to
A part of me will always be with you

You’ll always be the dream
That fills my head, (Yes you will, say you will, you know you will)
Oh baby
You’ll always be the one I know
(I’ll never forget)
There’s no use looking back or wondering (or wondering)
Because love is a strange and funny thing
No matter how I try and try
I just can’t say goodbye

No no no no

CHORUS
I never had a dream come true
Till the day that I found you
Even though I pretend that I moved on
You’ll always be my baby
I never found the words to say (words to say)
You’re the one I think about each day (each dayyyy)
And I know no matter
Where life takes me to
A part of me will always be
A part of me will always be
With you

Starring by Ramin Karimloo as Phantom and Sierra Boggess as Christine.

Plus, Ramin is the only actor who has played all three of Christine’s loves – Raoul, The Phantom (on stage) and Christine’s father (in the 2004 Joel Schumacher film adaptation); while Sierra is Ariel in The Little Mermaid on Broadway.

Hey~!
I think Ramin should better be Raoul!
The voice of Phantom should be more powerful !
( I don’t mean it’s not powerful at all, but it sounds a bit gentle.)

Plus again.
Sierra’s Ariel ! (Tooooooooooooooooooo lovely!)

It finally comes!!!

GLOBAL LAUNCH FOR ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER’S LONG-AWAITED NEW PRODUCTION

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s long awaited new show will have its World Premiere in London at the Adelphi Theatre on Tuesday 9 March 2010 followed by New York on Thursday 11 November and in Australia in 2011.

“LOVE NEVER DIES” continues the story of ‘The Phantom’, who has moved from his lair in the Paris Opera House to haunt the fairgrounds of Coney Island, far across the Atlantic. Set 10 years after the mysterious disappearance of ‘The Phantom’ from Paris, this show is a rollercoaster ride of obsession and intrigue…in which music and memory can play cruel tricks…and ‘The Phantom’ sets out to prove that, indeed, “LOVE NEVER DIES”.

“The Phantom of the Opera”, based on the French novel by Gaston Leroux, has proved a huge success the world over and has been seen by over 100 million people, making it the single most successful entertainment entity in history. The show has been translated into 15 languages and appeared in over 25 different countries including China, Brazil, Poland and Korea. “The Phantom of the Opera” opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London on 9 October 1986 starring Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford and celebrates its 23rd London birthday tomorrow on 9 October. “The Phantom of the Opera” won a staggering 50 awards worldwide, whilst global album sales currently stand at over 40 million copies.

Dima Bilan – Believe

Even when the thunder and storm begins
I’ll be standing strong like a tree in the wind
Nothing’s gonna move this mountain
or change my direction

I’m falling off the sky
and I’m all alone
The courage that’s inside is gonna break my fall
Nothing’s gonna dim my light within
But if I keep going on
it will never be impossible
Not today

‘Cause I’ve got something to believe in
As long as I’m breathin’
There is not a limit to what I can dream
‘Cause I got something to believe in
Mission to keep climbing
Nothing else can stop me if I just believe
and I believe in me

Even when the world tries to pull me down
Tell me that I can try to turn me around
I won’t let them put my fire out, without no
But if I keep going on
It will never be impossible
Not today

Yes, I got something to believe in
As long as I’m breathin’
There is not a limit to what I can dream
‘Cause I got something to believe in
Mission to keep climbin’
Nothing else can stop me if I just believe
And I believe

I can do it all
Open every door
Turn unthinkable to reality
You see, I can do it all and more

Believing, as long as I’m breathing
There is not a limit to what I can dream
Believing, mission to keep climbing
Nothing else can stop me if I just believe
And I believe in me

Believing, mission to keep climbing
Nothing else can stop me if I just believe
And I believe in me
